The A-League of Young Professionals (ALYP) is an ecosystem of distinguished young professionals and young leaders who are determined to become Africa’s next-generation C-Suite Executives and business leaders.

One of the most important factors that determine whether a business or organization succeeds or fails is the quality of leadership. ALYP was created to deliberately and consciously develop the leadership competencies of these carefully selected young professionals. Through regular thematic events, focused networking engagements, capacity building, and continual leadership training, ALYP help equip Africa’s next generation of C-Suite Executives and business leaders.

The A-League of Young Professionals is an initiative of the A-League Consult and the African Chamber for Youth Development.
